Cape Coast Castle, originally built as a fort by the Swedes in 1653, played a significant role in the gold and trans-Atlantic slave trades. Contemplate the horrifying history as you walk the former dungeon and through the Door of No Return, where slaves were loaded onto ships bound for the Americas, never to set foot on their soil again. Those of the African diaspora may opt for a "Door of Return" Ceremony (for an extra fee).
